    I'm guessing 17 to 30 officers per location. It did say over 500 sworn officers.

      Stations along the Northeast Corridor utilize about 75% of the police force. Stations will have anywhere from four officers to over 100 depending on the city. Once you get off the corridor, the numbers drop off drastically. You still have a sizable force in cities lick Chicago, and Los Angeles. But a majority of the central and western US are covered by a single detective who has a multiple state jurisdiction to cover. If my memory serves, Amtrak has an authorized force of 500 officers. Currently there are not that many hence why they are hiring.

            By policy, Amtrak employees are given priority in Amtrak jobs.

              Oh I already know they are given priority as they should. Outsiders will have to wait on the side. At the same time if outsiders have experience in the Police Officer position why not hire the outsiders with experience. I say half Amtrak employees n half outsiders with Police experience .

                Because Amtrak like most railroads with closed crafts are required to go in house and offer positions to current employees first. Union dictated rules, especially if someone's craft is eliminated.

                            Hey everyone,

                            I'm on the job in PA and came from a large west coast department 2 years ago.. I've been interested in Amtrak since they have a great reputation. I applied for the Harrisburg/Lancaster opening just now and this is now the 2nd time applying never heard anything at all from the first app.

                            2 questions:

                            1) is that common not to hear anything at all from an app?
                            2) what's the deal with lateral pay rates...(How many years credit do they give in regards to pay, is it case by case, what is the top lateral entry pay)

                            Thanks for your time and stay safe!
